For what it is, it ain't bad.
Old hippy liberal here, so you know I'm no Bush fan.Nice little propaganda piece proudly flying its leftist leanings. Nothing wrong with that as all propaganda,left or right,seeks to advance its cause.At least the person/persons responsible for its making have the courage to take a stand and you have to respect that even if you disagree with their point of view.
As far as the anti-war sentiment I can only wish more people thought that way. Violence in all forms should not be tolerated in a civilized world. Having said THAT, we do indeed live in a violent world and face very real dangers from all sides of the political/religious spectrum. Saddam was a monster of course but innocent of the charges leveled by the Bush administration as reasons for war. That a certain circle of higher ups and their friends/cronies made out like bandits monetarily is surely a coincidence.
Anyway, left or right politically, you have to admire the dedication and passion it took to make this entertaining and interesting little video.

There is so much uninformed rubbish posted here from people who haven't got a clue aside from what they learn from moronic agitators. Too much in fact to be bothered going through it all, so I'll just respond to the ironic VioletW.
"so you think there were no WDMs, really?? Really!
WDMs don't have to be nuclear bombs, they can be chemweapons in 4-inch vials. WDMs smuggled out of Iraq to CANADA. Yes, CANADA."
First off oh knowledgeable one, they are WMDs, not WDMs. Secondly, stating what WMDs can be is hardly proof of their existence. Thirdly, a chemweapon in a 4-inch vial is ***NOT*** a WMD. This is one of the things that has our "brave" armchair warriors so confused. A weapon of mass destruction needs a detonator that will spread the substance over a vast area, so the requirement is two-fold: it has to be a substance that will be effective over a large area, and the technology to do so must be there. Iraq had NEITHER, especially the latter.
I'll add a bonus comment for the guy who said that Saddam Hussein killed millions of Iranians. Hussein started the Iran-Iraq War at OUR bidding. The total dead was about a million from both sides. This, along with the other fantasies thrown about in this thread, does not justify the United States joining the fun. It boggles the mind how people use murder to justify murder.
Gee how could I know? I'm not a pluck pluck PLUCK chicken... I have worked on quite a few high-risk offshore projects... like JACADS. WDMs == chemical weapons. Bush Prez, stupid? Oh so you prefer a homosexual puppet controlled by G. Soros and his ilk? Oh, you think I'm one of 'them'... I AM one of 'them'... those who actually know what is going on. AND 'you' lot are morons. So you will deserve what you get when it happens. But it will be a little too late, then, to cry 'mommy!'.

Wars are not of God
Bush says,he is a born again Christian-he should know that the very first Commandment of God says,nothing is equal to God,so only God should have the power of life and death,wars kill innocent people,the Bible says God doesn't kill the innocent,so wars are not of God.People are brainwashed,mentally conditioned,by the politicians and the Media,so most people don't know the complete truth.Genesis 3:5:Man sins to be as God-1st Commandment:nothing's equal to God-only God should have the power of life&death(man in wars)so man sows what he reaps(natural disasters).

Thanks Bush 43
Saddam Hussein is dead and can't torture and kill any more Iraqis, Kurds, et al.
Iraq has a representative democracy.
We didn't back up tankers and steal oil from Iraq--there was no blood for oil.
War is always hell. We killed 4,000 innocent French civilians when invading Europe in WWII.
Arab Spring is in full bloom.
Thanks really, really stupid, low-brow Bush 43.

Response to rights4us
If they found any WMD or remnants thereof, we didn't get to see the stuff because it would have all been stamped with 'Made in USA'.
Do your research and you'll find that the Northern Kurd's that Saddam killed; were killed using bio-weapons made in the US. Rumsfeld helped sell him the weapons, and I'm sure if do a little digging you can find the videos on you-tube.
Just look at the munitions being used presently in the any of the Civil unrest areas of concern. The victims/citizens under attack are collecting the spent cartridges and you can clearly see Made in the USA.
As an American, I'm fed up and disgusted with the wars and propaganda being pushed on the citizens of this country.

Actually a Dutch man who arranged for Saddam to get that gas that killed the Kurds. Saddam killed millions of Iranians and some of his own people with the gas. He did it.
The playing of the Arabic style of music was a nice touch adding nicely into the author's projection. For that call, you get 1/2 points.
If this was done by CNN (laughs) then it explains the reason for going bankrupt. "unnamed" yea... right. Looks like it was done by an amateur nutbar.
You got your favorite Kookspiracy (Blood for Oil) welded to NWO (Fascists taking over the World) and Christians hate all Muslims idiocy
-all the claims I expect from El Kaka. (Watch out for the drones, pal, thems deadly.)
Fact is Saddam was bad. BAATH is a Socialist organization murdering fellow Iraqis for political power and the Muslim Brotherhood was started by an associate of Hitler. Don't belived me check it.

wow. this was amazing, i mean i never heard anyone bash bush before, i wonder if this was made up by one person because such originality and talent surely cannot belong to just one person. absolutely no jumping on the bandwagon here folks, nope this is a song saying bush is a bad person and blaming everything on him...something no one can claim they have ever been exposed to because the creator of this is such an exclusive visionary; a beacon of creativity; a fountain of originality.
now back to reality.
its so fun to see this kind of crap still popping up. it just proves that when you cant brag about the president in office that you voted for you can always just blame bush.

Psychopaths trying to take control
This is the same story or game we have been at for some time. Inbreed satanic control monsters want to enslave the entire planet. In their sadistic satanic world their flag would be a human face being stepped on by a big black boot. They really want to stomp out humanity. Do you think that is ok? Most americans are so apathetic do to the constant poisoning that they will follow big brother anywhere, even right up to the slaughter house. I see the trails in the sky every single day, they are not contrails or expanding contrails as they do not occur every single day. Our atmosphere is being altered, our water fluoridated, mercury in vaccination, preservatives in our food. Its quite obvious they want us sick and dead, unable to defend ourselves. Love and Light to all Concerned.

all forms of enslavement are repugnant
The people who love to prattle on endlessly about extremely unlikely hypotheticals like "Al Qaida" taking over the world and subjecting us all to their warped version of Shariah law are always silent on the very real, visible takeover by the New World Order police state crowd. Much like the Bush regime itself, their problem isn't with the concept of a dictatorship (the U.S. government helps install and is best friends with many brutal dictators), just with specific forms of dictatorship they happen to disagree with or cannot profit from financially.

Mencken was right
Based on some of the Bush defenses in the reviews here, the Iraq propaganda is well-matched to the typical US intelligence level, since 1) Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11, and 2) The Hussein regime was secular and Iraqi women had more rights than they do in "friendly" [sic] countries like Saudi Arabia. Sharia law has more of a foothold there than ever.

What do you expect from CNN?
If self preservation is an instinct that you possess, I suggest you educate yourself on Islam. The world according to the Koran means if you are not a muslam, you must die or in the best case scenario be subject to Sharia Law and pay tribute to Muslems. Islam is no less dangerous than the fascist Nazi regime that led us into World War to defeat it. No less effort is required here if we are to survive.

Lets keep the imporatant films coming
In any insurrection against tyrannical governments, media is essential, especialy from a wide ranging group of artists/directors/musicians etc. to have a fuller dramatic impact. Another great movie on the hipocricies of this administration.
Its also important to note there is little difference between the two main US political parties, as in my own country the UK. The phantom divides between liberal and conservative mainstream political paties is farcical in all western democracies today, which needs to be noted. Those here who think typing in CAPITALS adds merrit to ILL INFORMED and IGNORANT xenophobia are sorely mistaken. US/UK/EU brutal foreign policy creates desperation, which creates terrorism, not the other way around. I'm sorry to be that crude but nobody with real concerns about the world should be listening to corpoate owned media ond corporate owned politicians.

Take it EASY why dont ya'
I'll have to say, im not a HUGE Bush fan, and yeah, war SUCKS, but Republicans arent the only ones that start them. Look, i didnt think it was ESSENTIAL to go into IRAQ and remove the Hussein regime, but we did, and that being said, it would be nice to hear on some of the news networks BESIDES Fox about all the GOOD things that are happening over there i.e. all the filtration systems we are setting up so people can FINALLY get clean drinking water, the schools that are being built and reopened so kids can FINALLY get an education, the human rights that women over there are FINALLY receiving. Look, im very liberal on alot of issues (abortion, NRA, gay marraige) but when it comes to security and taxes you can call me a Republican. I was a mile away on 9/11 when those towers fell and watched it all with my own 2 eyes, i dont EVER want to see that again, and i want my 3 year old little girl to have a safe happy life. You cant blame the Bush regime for everything, some thing, yes,m but NOT everything. If you think that if we renounce the existence of Isreal, open up our borders, put John Kerry in the White House, and pull our troops out of the middle east, that fantical Muslims will STOP trying to blow up? Wrong, they will try even harder. I got ZERO problems with the Patriot Act, wire-tapping and Homeland Security, none. I just dont wanna get blown up again. Oh yeah, and PLEASE keep my taxes as low as possible. Thank you and Mazel-tov

the soundtrack sounds great, but the visuals are an indecipherable smear of digtal colour, at least under my setup. I've tried using the latest CVS version of FFMPEG, VLC and Apple's Quicktime 7.0.2 - on Mac Os 10.4 --- all with no luck. I guess your Quicktime .mov criticism is unwarranted, ssieranoja - Quicktime itself can't play it. Other downlaoders out there - save yourself 59 megabytes of dwnloading by viewing a aprtial download first to see if your machine can play it...
